Almost half of new estate already sold

First published in News by

ALMOST half of homes on a newly built housing estate in Thundersley have been sold.

The Ashcroft Place development, in Kiln Road, was launched by Castle Point mayor Maryse Isles during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 27, and already nearly half its 150 homes have been sold.

The estate, built by developer David Wilson Homes, offers two, three, four and five-bedroom houses.

It was officially opened by the mayor and children from Kingston Primary School, in Church Road.

David Eardley, managing director of the developers, said: “We were delighted the mayor, Maryse Iles, and representatives of Kingston Primary School, could be with us to mark the launch of the next phase of Ashcroft Place.

“The initial phase proved to be very popular, with the majority of buyers being local people. Judging by the response we have already had, especially from the local community, phase two looks set to eclipse this.”

The Government’s Help to Buy scheme is available for new buyers at the development, and allows people to put down just a five per cent deposit on homes valued between £287,995 and £649,995.

Mr Eardley added: “Our showhome is open and we have floor plans available to view for all our house types, allowing purchasers to consider buying off plan.

“We can help buyers find the right home for them, as well as explain the help to buy scheme which has already helped thousands of homebuyers to move.”

This just goes to show, the real need and demand for such projects, which is why Jotmans will have to be seriously considered.

There are plenty of homes for sale in the area. New houses are always an attraction.
However, this over populated area will become less and less desirable as it becomes ever more over crowded.
Jotmans is green belt and provides some protection against very intense pollution, provides recreation, is a much needed green lung, provides a small barrier against urban sprawl. It is protected green belt and therefore shouldn't be up for grabs. Green belt laws were, for very good reasons, put in place many years ago and have provided a sensible and much respected framework for the built environment. Developers have respected it and the reasons for it.
Extra homes at Jotmans can only be accessed via existing roads and they are rammed at certain times of the day already. The poor residents in that area will find their lives seriously affected by a huge increase in population density that will put them on par with many inner city areas - without the infra structure or facilities of city living.
Castle Point is a tiny Borough - it really can't take the burden of the number of houses proposed without a very dramatic fall in the quality of life of its present residents. Those residents matter!

Totally agree! We looked at buying here...until we saw the prices. We have now purchased a lovely 3 bed house in the same area, less costly and (as it is an 1930's era house) much better quality of build which has bigger rooms and wont have cracks everywhere after a few years! They definately dont build them like they used to

what are these 'laws' you suppose protect green belt ? 'green belt' is a simple policy whereby urbanisation is 'resisted' by recommendation, for the 'foreseeable future' (from time of designation)....... there no protection against developing green belt, as will become apparent very soon in castle point

GB is a policy covered by town planning law which does contain exceptions and is badly in need of being tightened up. I understand the government are looking at doing that this year.

You mean you prefer bricks to plasterboard, whatever next.
Nothing more exciting than being able to hear someone three doors down flush the loo cos the walls are so thin.
